A 45-year-old female asked:

what does this mean subcondral fracture of the medial femoral condyle, associated marrow edema, enchondroma in the distal femoral metaphysis ?

Enchondromas are benign tumors , and if no fracture is found, can be just observed over time, as remission or stability over time does not require removal. If a fracture is associated with an enchondroma. your orthopedic provider may wait until the fracture is healed before dealing with the enchondroma, if considered necessary at all.

Possibly: While wrist pain can be part of carpal tunnel syndrome, it usually initially presents as numbness in the thumb and first two fingers, worse at night. If you do have carpal tunnel syndrome, wearing a neutral position wrist splint at night (to prevent bending of the wrist while you sleep) can be very helpful.

My wife has a boil behind her back. Sometimes, the boil will swell and contained pus. We think egg consumtion caused this. Is it possible?

No: A boil is an infection from an organism on the skin. There are also glands that can become occluded and these sebaceous glands will drain a malodorous thick material but they are not always infected. See your doctor for treatment but not related to eggs.
